Australian tournament platform and media company Mogul has appointed Cameron Adams, Co-founder of Canva to its board of directors.
Adams was selected by Mogul as a non-executive director after it sought out a somebody with experience in digital media and technology.
Adams has experience working at Google as a User Interface Designer prior to co-founding Fluent and later Canva. Mogul seeks to utilize his experience at scaling up technology companies to help with business development.
Adams spoke about the role with AdNews: “I look forward to helping the team continue to improve and grow the new monetisation opportunities that have arisen from the launch of Mogul’s Branded Hubs earlier this year.”
In May 2019 Mogul announced that it had raised A$3.1 million (£1.63 million) through its latest share placement, which was put back into the Dota 2 Alliance League in partnership with Alliance.
Gernot Abl, Managing Director of Mogul added: “We’re excited to have Cameron on our Board and look forward to working closer with him both at a Board level, as well as Cameron being able to provide invaluable mentoring and guidance opportunities to our team.”
Mogul entered the Middle Eastern esports market in August through a partnership with esports venue operator SARENA. Mogul’s platform will be used in SARENA’s gaming cafes across the Middle East, as well as the ESaudi Professional League and the Electronic Price Mohamed Bin Salman Cup.
